Because Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film is up against the New York Film Festival (it runs September 23 to October 2) I’m sadly not going to be able to do any coverage. This sucks because the festival has programmed some great stuff. How do I know? Because I’ve seen a good number of the films already. As you can see by the list below there are some great films you need see.
AMERICANISH (dir. Iman Zawahry) - Los Angeles Premiere
MARVELOUS AND THE BLACK HOLE (dir. Kate Tsang) - Los Angeles Premiere
